Big news was shared today from the Close to Heart Corporate Office to all consultants. Here is an excerpt from the information I received today:
"With the release of a new Idea Book, we also strive to apprise you of key product lines that are being featured in the Idea Book for the last time. While we do not provide early notification on all products, we provide you this selected information so that you can better anticipate changes to core product lines and communicate with your customers. We recognize that such early notification may accelerate demand for popular items; be aware that should this occur, items may sell out and will not be reinventoried.
The Spring/Summer 2012 Idea Book is the last idea book the following products will be featured:
* How-To Books
* Distressing Kit (full kit only)
* Exclusive Inks® Markers
* Cardstock Shade Packs
* 8 1/2" x 11" Cardstock Packs
I rely so heavily on my How-To Books. I wanted to be sure that you have this information early so you can get the books you still need while they are available. These are the books for scrapbooking: "Magic," "Imagine," "Cherish," and "Reflections" and the books for cardmaking: "Wishes" and "Originals." You can take a look on my website to see which ones you may yet be missing: http://lovetostamp.myctmh.com
